KFC’s marketing folks have some really strange ideas. Over the years, they’ve made chicken-scented fireplace logs, gravy-scented candles, and a Colonel Sanders bearskin rug. They’re either insane or creative geniuses, because they’ve got me talking about their brand yet again.
You’ll never see any of the Game of Thrones characters wearing sneakers, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t have sneakers based on them. HBO and sportswear giant adidas have teamed up to celebrate the eighth and final season of the TV adaption of George R.

Knowing how to tie your shoes is a pretty important skill to have, because if you don’t know how, your shoes are going to fall off all day long. Well, guess what? Robots are now doing this for us so that we humans can forget how to do one more thing.

I don’t like sushi. I once was tricked into eating some, and I thought it was really gross. I was starving after walking 187 miles during CES one year, and was invited to dinner, along with the promise of steak.
